Alesis DEQ830
8 channel 30-band EQ (!) + Real-time analyzer (RTA)

19 "rack mount 1U (!!!)

Full digital, of course.
Analog connector jack 1 / 4 "(x8 + x8 IN OUT) or ADAT in + out (!)

No word clock sync between (single point - in my opinion)
At that price, it's just fantastic!


Super convenient!
+ Although a traditional graphic EQ:
- Store and recall curves
- Store and recall of all settings.
- Monitor all entrances
- Grouping super convenient and easy bands / channels

The grouping does not maneuver as fast as a true graphic manual, where you can push a finger several channels at once, but it's convenient ... And, of course, with a graphic EQ "manual", there's no memory ...

Total: Really great!


The sound is good.

I use only full digital (ADAT in - ADAT out)

While not really "constant Q" (nothing to see!), We can not say that the settings are soft.
So: Practice and not ridiculous.

I use an insert on some tracks when I found that the EQ on the DM1000 are a bit 'short'. Or release "Monitor" (returns) ...

Not yet had the opportunity to try Live though.

Update 14/09/2010:
Well, I can also get in and out to ADAT both ADAT (for insert slices) and Analog (for shipments of "returns" scene) ...
Too bad we can not also mix with analogue inputs ADAT, choosing which to use each channel ... Well, okay, I nitpick.


I've had qq weeks. I only used on Remix so far, mainly because I'm running IOS digital ...
To be continued.

I also bought an analog EQ Apex DBQ-Zero.
This last "sounds" better, and the settings are much more effective and "sharp" (true "Constnat Q"), but the Alesis is not ridiculous.

What worries me a bit to Live is sync via ADAT. I trust moyennemant ... In addition, the sound, while not bad, not at a Klark Apex or ...
I will not use the Alesis a facade, but hey, in return ...
(And it does not seem to introduce too much latency.)

What I particularly like is its practicality: 1U 8 EQ 30 bands!
+ Recording (and consolidation). Really great!

Small "flat" made gaffe, it's getting hot! Provide good air it.

A remake, for that price? When you want!
Update 14/09/2010:

Yesterday I had a weird phenomenon: By changing the ADAT input connectors (for move first by using the Finalizer-2 channels in and out "Through" - then by the DEQ) while everything was lit, I "lost" 2 channels. Everything else works except these 2 there. Bizarre!
I cut the DEQ with the switch on the front, tried other cables etc.. Nothing to do. Then I cut the power supply altogether. Everything is back to normal.
I was scared! Conclusion: Do NOT change the input power connections. No risk of breakage, but to "crash" yes ...
Well, that's okay, now I know. And you also ...

Everything is in the notice cit Previous! 8 input and output jacks or adat symtriques with slecteur level in sync with 44Khz/48Khz house or by the coupling of adat + DIFFERENT + channels multiple bypass ..


You must read the manual in English (only) plutt incomplete especially for rception SysEx (keep in program mode !!!)... The config and use are fairly intuitive even when! !


The rsultats gniaux are mainly used adat and insert on a console numrique (yamaha 01v96v2 for me) .. The analog inputs / outputs, I will not speculate because I do not use it so!! Be careful because you can boost / cut up to 24dB per band conditions (see manual!)


I use it for some time and trs double Input / output (jacks symtriques trs + adat is nice ..... The only thing missing is an input / output World clock ... Too bad!!
The report qualitprix is excellent (even better opportunity if you dgoter one, I got it for half price!) Above the bbte is still unavailable in France
If you find one, go there with closed eyes for I Do not hesitate!!

Alesis DEQ830
8 30 band graphic qualisers mmorisables, and with a spectrum analyzer for each of the eight tracks, all in a tiny 1U!
Only jack connections asymtrique


I took the head for an hour with the record "gnrique" for DEQ224, DEQ230 (D) and DEQ830 not got my trs clear, even while flying ENVIS has does not read the manual. But After a few manipulations, I made it. Once we found the trick is navigating ass quickly, intuitively.


For such a small rack, even if a qualiser is my first, I bleuff share the quality of audio processing it can do. I use it on all quasiement instruments: two guitars, bass, two songs, and bass drum (trigger), to make it "live" each instrument as a sound space, they can be distinguished in the mix gn ral, while reducing the maximum saturation of some common frquences all instruments. With the spectrum analyzer you can see everything;)


I have used for the first time today ....

What I really like:
-Size (internal power)
-Functions that make their jobs
-And especially the spectrum analyzer in real time!

Personally, some small but unimportant dtails I would like to announce:
He turns his ds power cord is connected.
It heats, although the VENTILATED ...
Button-RTA (Spectrum Analyzer in real time) ct the switch ON / OFF ... not practical so bad manip ....( especially live)

I did not try to test other, because I wanted the one that's all.

Alesis really hard with this DEQ830, the report qualitprix is ​​unbeatable for this kind of stuff, and I would do this choice with his eyes closed
